Entry #956

Did 430 x 5 on deadlifts Tuesday and felt overtrained. Actually looking forward to next week's deload. Could have done more than 5 but something didn't feel right about busting out 10 reps of 430. Looks like this is the end of my high rep run, I'm gonna keep things 5 and under on deadlifts from now on.

Bench press:
230 x 5
260 x 3
290 x 5 or 6 (lost count)
> Hate it when that happens. I was listening to Scott Mendelson being interviewed on Iron Radio during warm-ups and it just so happened to give me a pretty good briefing on bench pressing. I've also decided I really want some steel-toe boots to bench in.

Neutral-grip dumbbell press:
125s x 5

Supinated cable rows
205 x 8, 5 sets 


  1. I've lost count of the reps a few times too while I was lifting.So why do you want steel-toed boots to bench in?

  2. Helps you plant your feet into the ground better.
